This paper argues that managing technological knowledge is the last frontier of lean manufacturing. An empirically grounded model of the structure of organizational technological knowledge allows manufacturing managers to determine the true value of lean manufacturing practices over lifecycle of their processes. The approach described in this paper also helps fab managers enhance profitability by choosing appropriate strategies organizational learning and problem-solving for three semiconductor businesses: VLSI, commodity components and specialty parts.
